Leading pizza franchise, Papa John’s, has announced it has opened its latest franchised store in Streatham, London. The brand-new outlet shows off Papa John’s refreshed look, designed to appeal to customers who just love Papa John’s top quality pizza, made with only the freshest, finest ingredients.
Phil Gaffer, QFP, franchise sales and business development manager Papa John’s UK explains: “Streatham is one of several new store openings in the UK. Like the other new outlets, it has an updated look which we have been rolling out gradually. It’s more modern, fun and welcoming with one or two regional touches so customers feel right at home.
“The new décor is just one example of how we support our many franchisees across the UK in running their franchised stores. Behind the scenes, our national and local marketing teams, product research and development, finance department and site selection and construction teams all work together to offer franchisees full turn-key opening of new stores. As we continue to expand in the UK, we are on the lookout for new franchisees hungry to join our Papa John’s family and realise the opportunity that becoming a multi-unit franchisee offers.
“For potential new franchisees I’m currently running virtual discovery meetings on a 121 basis which is the first step in ‘getting to know you’ and a chance to ask questions. I’m also running Virtual guest visits every month for potential franchisees to talk to key members of the leadership team until we are able to resume in-person visits. These have proved popular as we can demonstrate the support the Company offers to those looking to set up their own Papa John’s portfolio.”
A recent virtual guest visitor commented: “It was good to gain an overall understanding of the network, get a feel of the team and gain confidence about the company. The event was very beneficial. It was good to see the level of support available from within Papa John’s and the professionalism of the team and that everyone is passionate and supportive.”
“Our “BETTER INGREDIENTS. BETTER PIZZA.” concept is more popular than ever! For those interested in a piece of the action and running a multi-unit Papa John’s franchise, we have opportunities throughout the UK. We are particularly looking for franchisees hungry to develop businesses in the North West, North East, Nottinghamshire and the South West. Help is provided with location selection, growth incentives and full turn-key opening of stores. As a franchise, the Company supplies all the assistance needed to get your successful Papa John’s up and running.”
